Kinderlime Review

2019-11-20

Kinderlime has helped us better manage participant attendance records and communicate with families

Pros

Ease of participant check in, response to client feedback

Cons

Complicated reporting processes at times, incomplete program reporting that requires me adding formulas for basic content. Support can be iffy at times.

Attendance made easy!

2019-11-19

We love being able to keep track of all of our attendance and being able to pull up any students record to see when, the times and who picked the student up.

Pros

We can also keep track of students and their attendance. Kinderlime also notifies us anytime there is an issue and they always have it resolved in a short amount of time.

Cons

The biggest downfall we have is the reports and not being able to get all the information we need on said reports.

I compared for months and Kinderlime came out on top

2018-09-14

The Kinderlime team is very responsive, they offer real 5 Star customer service.

Pros

It is easy to use and more intelligently designed. It has enough muscle with billing, organization and reporting features that you can really use it to keep the business side of your school organized and keep connected to your clients.

Cons

I wish they had features to support management of staff data, communication between teachers and the front office, and teacher appreciation (Track hire date, reminder of teacher employment anniversaries, log of training dates with renewal reminders, and a list of personal favorites for teacher gift giving).

Our preschool has recently switched to Kinderlime

2019-07-29

Pros

We like the app that parents can login into to see updates on their child and be updated through live notifications. The childcare management system is robust and works well.

Cons

We wish that the main dashboard in the CMS had a little better layout for overall details in classrooms and things, but the software is great and does what it's supposed to.

Kinderlime Kinks

2019-12-18

Pros

I love the activities features and how we know exactly who is authorized to pick up the child.

Cons

I believe that the administrator should have full access to adding students who were not signed in on the correct dates, I believe that we should have optimized attendance reports for days present, absent, and tardy.

The ease of using Kinderlime

2019-11-19

My overall check in/out process has become so much easier as well as reports and tracking.

Pros

I love the Learning section which allows me to record lesson plans.

Cons

I wish that I could print a batch billing easily. A lot of my parents do not have email or electronic capability at home.

Kinderlime has been very useful for my staff, it's much easier to log things in with Kinderlime.

Pros

I like the sign in and out feature, the activity tracking, I also use the billing feature and staff sign in and out for payroll.

The ledger account is not a useable feature for bookkeeping or for tracking transactions.

Great Investment

2019-11-19

I can come to one location and track attendance, meals, employee time cards, send message to parent about their child's daily activities and bill my parents weekly or monthly with ease.

Pros

Kinderlime software is very user friendly and does not require a great amount of time to set up. It is a one stop software program. Parents are able to sign their children in with a pin or signature. No more forgetting to pay and late fee. Parents can pay their tuition from the ease of the home computer. Kinderlime is very affordable for smaller child care facility. This program along has impressed parents and help me gain students.

Cons

I don't have a problem with this software. I have a home daycare and a tutorial session I offer on the weekends and Kinderlime allows me to create different classes for each group I work with. We even use it for Children's church sign in.

SuperLove KinderLime!!!

2019-11-20

Billing, attendance, employee hours, etc. is all in one place.

Pros

Very simple learning curve - just download and go!!!

Cons

So far, it doesn't track employee hours on the app, so I have to log into the computer to see if someone is approaching their hours for the week and that is not always convenient when you're making a quick decision about who to let go early.

Everything I need, anywhere I need it.

2019-11-19

I get to share the milestones and happy faces from the daily activities in a way that it makes the time they spend on the phone all about their little one.

Pros

It is designed to be paperless and it allows me to run my Home Daycare with ease, even when I am not in the office.

Cons

I do participate in the Child Nutrition Program and I have to go to different software to enter my meals and attendance, it would be nice to integrate Kinderlime with the programs like KidKare.

Lisa's Lullabies Learning Center- Family Child Care

2019-11-18

It is definitely making it easier to be in compliance with Licensing as well as Delaware Stars

Pros

It has definitely helped me manage my daycare operations- sign in/out, billing/payments, family communication, employee timecards, now learning observation and assessment, etc.

Cons

The billing - it would be easier if it would allow me to choose my pay periods with ease being as my parents have different payment schedules.

Prior to Dec-16 we were completely paper-based. With 150 students it was not manageable.

2017-05-25

In prior years, the manual calculations and billing were not tracked electronically which lead to difficulty with so much, including providing annual childcare fees and payments for HSA reimbursements.

Pros

Although we have a difficult fee structure, it is still far more accountable to download the data, add our fee structure and then import the charges.

Cons

The reporting needs a bit of fine-tuning to be able to pull data based on various ID types (family, student, KL). 3.)

The Best Decision

2019-11-20

My response time to my questions have be great and the customer service has been nothing less than attentive even at off times during the day.

Pros

All in one billing, marketing and lead management. Great customer service and awesome response time (and I have had questions pop in my head at 2am...lol).

Cons

The only cons I have would be not having the calendar usable on my desktop.

Invaluable for Ratio Monitoring

2019-12-05

Pros

There are more features for every conceivable activity and tracking need related to childcare, and we love the ease of use.

Cons

I personally do not like that there are two or three different sign in screens to click around to--there is the "home" screen of all children (that you can sign them in and out of), an attendance screen that I can sign them in and out on, AND the pin login screen that is difficult to get to.
